Superstorm Sandy

In 2013, Cantor Fitzgerald, BGC Partners, and The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund committed $10 million to families in the New York area who were severely affected by Superstorm Sandy. We adopted 19 elementary schools in Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, Staten Island and New Jersey, providing $1,000 prepaid debit cards for immediate assistance to nearly 10,000 families with children enrolled in these schools.

Through the remarkable efforts of our dedicated volunteers and the employees of Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC Partners, we were able to help families in the communities hit hardest by the storm recover from the devastation of Sandy.
